About the Snowman
Jeezy’s sometimes controversial snowman logo has been a staple of his career since his rise to prominence in 2005. Originally worn on a medallion, the snowman design morphed into a simple sketch on a t-shirt collection, which paved the way for it to become his signature icon. After wearing the design in multiple music videos, the t-shirt took off and was being rocked by Jeezy’s loyal supporters around the world. Soon, school officials banned the shirt for its connection to the themes in Jeezy’s music, which only fueled the rapper’s career, causing him to double down on the snowman to further push his brand forward.
Now, more than 15 years since the snowman’s first appearance, Jeezy is leveraging the innovative NFT solution from his partners at Oasis to offer his fans a chance to own a multi-dimensional,
minted version of the iconic symbol as a digital collectible. Featuring a series of limited-edition animated and AR-enhanced NFTs, this collaborative project will be accompanied by an audio file of Jeezy narrating the origins of the snowman design, along with a specially chosen music track.
“We’re excited to finally roll out this signature piece of Jeezy’s brand to the public on this new, carbon-negative NFT marketplace,” said Liquid Avatar CEO and Oasis Digital Studios Co- founder, David Lucatch. “Jeezy has always pushed the envelope in hip hop, which has been defined by his sporting of the snowman. I think his fans will appreciate how we’ve gone above and beyond to bring this symbol of his monumental career to life. With his signature twist on it, both fans and collectors alike will be rushing to get a hold of this NFT.”
As previously announced, Oasis and Jeezy will continue leveraging NFT technology in the future to bring his extensive fanbase unique offerings within the expanding digital sphere. This collaboration ensures that Jeezy is breaking new ground in the NFT world by embracing 3D and augmented reality (AR) technology in the production of his art. Having started off his career in the music industry under the name “Young Jeezy,” Jeezy has since grown into a true entrepreneurial success. In addition to his custom clothing, podcasting and art endeavors, Jeezy has released a line of fitness water, Defiance Fuel, initiated a restauranteur partnership with American Cut Steakhouse, and maintains an ongoing partnership with Tequila Avion. Jeezy also began hosting his own talk show, Worth a Conversation with Jay “Jeezy” Jenkins, on FOX Soul in October of 2020.
